My girlfriend and I recorded a flight tonight over the northern bay area that would probably have made people like Kelly and Ben Rich Smirk ear to ear if they had seen what we witnessed.
Before going into any more detail, I did some checking in, and saw this on the FAA NOTAM website:
DC 6/9096 - CA..AIRSPACE BEALE AFB, CA..TEMPORARY
FLIGHT RESTRICTIONS.SEPTEMBER 11-18, 2016 LOCAL. PURSUANT TO 49 USC 40103(B), THE FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION (FAA) CLASSIFIES THE AIRSPACE DEFINED IN THIS NOTAM AS 'NATIONAL DEFENSE AIRSPACE'. ANY PERSON
WHO KNOWINGLY OR WILLFULLY VIOLATES THE RULES CONCERNING OPERATIONS IN THIS AIRSPACE MAY BE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CRIMINAL PENALTIES UNDER 49 USC 46307. PILOTS WHO DO NOT ADHERE TO THE
FOLLOWING PROCEDURES MAY BE INTERCEPTED, DETAINED AND INTERVIEWED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT/SECURITY PERSONNEL. PURSUANT TO TITLE 14 CFR SECTION 99.7, SPECIAL SECURITY
INSTRUCTIONS, ALL AIRCRAFT FLIGHT OPERATIONS ARE PROHIBITED WITHIN AN AREA DEFINED AS 10NM RADIUS OF 390803N1212615W (MYV055006.7) 4100FT MSL-FL180 EFFECTIVE 1609112200 UTC (1500 LOCAL 09/11/16) UNTIL 1609182159 UTC (1459 LOCAL 09/18/16).
www.notams.faa.gov...

My question is, if I were to post more about what we saw, or the recording we captured, would we get any "knocks on the door" for posting it? Our recording was taken from the ground, 100+ KM away from Beale, and would not jeopardize any radar cross section schematics.
This was not a UFO. It had Red & Green lights, but like I said, I don't want to post anything else on its details before I talk to more knowledgeable folks on these matters.
This thing was more impressive than anything I've ever seen.
Thanks in advance.

Beale seems to be a hub for UAV ops.

If it wasn't meant to be seen, trust me...it wouldn't have been seen. Especially over the bay area. Of all the places for flights like that, I can't really see the bay area as a location where top secret test flights might be carried out. I'd echo what Phage said, Beale seems to have a lot of interaction with UAV operations and is indeed one of the key points where those operations are carried out.

As Shugo said, if it was something you'd get "knocks on the door" for, you'd never have seen it. Or you only would have seen it at such altitude and speed, they wouldn't care. That's why I don't think the so-called "black triangles" are anything as fantastical as some suppose. I'm sure their actual purpose and specifications are secret and for good reason, but they clearly don't care that we know they exist since they keep appearing over large population centers.

So with that in mind... please please share! There's such a paucity of truly good UFO footage. We're always in need of more! And thank-you!

Peace.

Is this "recording" new or is it related to the picture detailed here?

If you've already got some pics locked up in a safe somewhere and are currently "NDA free" maybe you should be advising us how to play it?

What's that old refrain on ATS that I'm quite sure that you know very well:

"Pics, or it didn't happen."

I doubt you would pick out reds and greens at >100km. It over the horizon for ground level, I know it goes up as the lights will be higher but at that distance you are lucky to see anything let alone make a judgement on what it may be.

IMO.

I'm with everyone else. You weren't going to see it unless they didn't care if you saw it. Unless you were piloting an aircraft within the restricted space, there won't be any "knocks" anywhere.

That being said, with red and green being mentioned, I have to admit I'm going to be extremely disappointed if the footage is anything short of Santa's newest sleigh being tried out.

Interesting.

I want to stay up on this one since this is in my neck of the woods.

FAA can't really touch you if you were merely "observing" from the ground.

Pics would be great, but even a detailed description would be greatly appreciated.

If anyone were to object to a relayed description, there's always "eyewitness error" to fall back on.

Contrary to popular opinion, accidental sightings do occur. One of the most classified systems in the US military was left out in the open for everyone to see on Microsoft Earth many years ago. Generally if you're not under an NDA and see something like that, you're OK as far as that goes.

The FAA has nothing to do with it. If it's military and classified the DIA will get involved and they have totally different rules about what they can and can't do.

Not even a description what was so 'impressive' about it?

A night sitting lacks any detail other than lights, performance and maybe sound.


This thing was more impressive than anything I've ever seen.

Puff-puff, give.

The suspense.... If it wasn't meant to be seen, it shouldn't have been in a public viewing area. Who cares if they knock. Are they going to suicide you....

Sorry guys, I was trying to get advice on this matter before going into details.
I'm the first one to agree the bay area was the last place I was expecting to see something like this, Trust me.

What I have is a 4+ minute, 300+MB video of this thing taken at sunset(~20.30) taken with a Bushnell equinox Z monocular with a 6x zoom. The video is blurry(sorry) at times, and the quality could be more desired(double sorry), and the video lacks audio, but I think you can make out the green and red wing lights flashing pretty easily with the slowly sinking sun, and grey fog backdrop. Then again, maybe because we saw that green and red so prominently during the encounter, it won't be as apparent in the video.
But the quality ISN'T the point.
This thing could MOVE. Then stop on a dime. Then take off again like it was nothing. Then it just kind of disappeared. I tried to keep the camera as low as possible, so you can have some perspective on how quick this guy was.
I know when I figure out how to upload this file. Alot of people will be disappointed due to the shaky hand syndrome.
Not my finest moment (or gear available on hand) in my photography career.
I'm sharing this with you guys for analysis. So please, feel free to criticize and much more, and please let me know if you think this video doesn't show a thing.
When I get this video up, Don't look for a shape in this video. you won't see one(hence the RCS comment).
what this video shows us is how much of the skyline this thing could move across like it was nothing at all.

I will be uploading this by the end of the morning. Just have to figure out how to share such a behemoth of a file. I may just throw it into YouTube?
Im not here to brag, or to tell you what I saw I'm here to share with this awesome community something that I can legally share and hoping for your insight.
I just hope you guys will be able to help me figure out what I saw last night:
New done project?
Or just swamp gas?

Footage taken at 20.43
Looking northwest towards the north bay.
The area this object was spotted nearby is a noted training area for civilian pilots.
I know this training zone well, as I used to train there with my instructor when I was trying to rack up hours towards getting my pilots license.

Can't wait to see! S&F

ETA: Kinda hard to see with the camera jumping around but it definitely looks like it's going pretty fast.

id be interested in seeing the video. I have no doubt vehicles as described above exist.

In late april 2014 i witnessed a vehicle at low altitude less than 5000 feet tear across the los angeles (santa monica to hawthorn about 15 miles?) skyline in under 3 three seconds. Dead silent. Absolutely and totally silent. What i saw never stoped and was travelling at speed. Other witnesses however since november 2011 have seen the same vehicle stop and then shoot off at extreme speeds in the same location.

2 dats later see the same thing at about 1000 foot altitude flying at maybe .9 to 1.1 at my most conservative estimate flying down the center of my street. Not in the neighborhood. Not in my general direction. Directly and deliberately right down the center of my street. Displaying its ECM suite.

Both instances. No witnesses or reports. But still brazenly flew it right over los angeles for all to see.

In fact just to the north of los angeles at any given time if you look up enough youll see classified aircraft. One even in broad daylight. To date 6 different aircraft or vehicles. Greenlady, the yellow light, a trio of red lights in formation doing hypersonic until one broke formation and headed off (PGS? out of south base?), a LRSB/tactical bomber looking thing (in the daylight-very pretty btw), the bluevstar that jumps around the sky and does 90 degree turns, and in april something that resembles the depictions of the tr3b but much sleeker and bad ass looking. And the best part. They can get away with thay cause without pics nobody believes me and thinks im making it all up for some sort of attention. Seriously.

So youll be ok discussing this at least. You may get a inquisitive phone call or a car parked in front of your house but nobody is going to get threatened. Just do whatever they say if they ever do ask for your cooperation.

So i say show the video. Tell your tale. I am apt to believe you.

Looks sorta like a consumer grade quad.
